For me, going vegan was an ethical and environmental decision. I’m doing the right thing by the animals.
God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools.
If you violate Nature’s laws you are your own prosecuting attorney, judge, jury, and hangman.
In a few decades, the relationship between the environment, resources and conflict may seem almost as obvious as the connection we see today between human rights, democracy and peace.
The only way forward, if we are going to improve the quality of the environment, is to get everybody involved.
Make big plans; aim high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.
My buildings don’t speak in words but by means of their own spaciousness.
My buildings will be my legacy… they will speak for me long after I’m gone.
My passion and great enjoyment for architecture, and the reason the older I get the more I enjoy it, is because I believe we – architects – can effect the quality of life of the people.
No architect troubled to design houses that suited people who were to live in them, because that would have meant building a whole range of different houses. It was far cheaper and, above all, timesaving to make them identical.
Every building is a prototype. No two are alike.
Every great architect is – necessarily – a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.
Frank Lloyd Wright
For many years, I have lived uncomfortably with the belief that most planning and architectural design suffers for lack of real and basic purpose. The ultimate purpose, it seems to me, must be the improvement of mankind.
Form follows function.
Form follows profit is the aesthetic principle of our times.
